I have a Red Paddle 10.8. I've had 2 other makes but this is best quality. Last ages, v v durable and keep their value. The 10.6 is also great and the 11.3 sport if you want to be nippy. Don't cut costs with your board, they're all you've got when on a large body of water !! Getonthewateruk sell Jobes if you want to pay less for a good board, great service too, enter chat and ask for Gareth. Good postage options. We had the jobe Duna .What board have you got? I was looking at a Red Paddle Co board, but they are soooo expensive.
Personally I cannot see the point in SUP it is probably the most inefficient way to propel a craft through the water, although apparently it's good for your core!
That said if I didn't have a roof rack fitted for the kayaks I would have a couple of inflatables in the garage as nothing beats messing about on the water.
how hard is it?
I’ve fancied having a go since they started appearing a few years ago and when we were in Greece last year some of our friends turned up with one on their boat, so I had a go. It’s hard to start with and needs a lot of concentration, but I did quite well and we will be getting one before we go back in May.I had a go in the summer , it looks really lovely and I enjoyed it but it is fair to say I was a bit rubbish, I will be giving it another try !
